Collection(s)It is the very house where Vasile Alecsandri lived between 1867 and 1890. In 1885 Vasile Alecsandri donated to the Romanian Academy the house with all its goods, including the library and a few manuscripts. The Romanian Academy took possession of them in 1914 and named a custodian in charge with the entire stock. Until 1944 the house remained in the custody of the Academy, being opened to the public. During World War II the building underwent destructions, and needed overhaul repair. The house opened as a museum on the 9th of June 1957. The exhibition was reorganized in 1987, and after the restoration of 1991 - 1993, it reopened on the 19th of September 1993. The house was built by Vasile Alecsandri in 1867 and is listed as a monument of architecture. The exhibits include pieces of furniture, oil paintings, family photographs, manuscript photocopies, letters, issues of different works, documents on the Revolution of 1848, the Union of the Principalities, Alecsandri's activity as a diplomat and a member of the Junimea society, reminders of his plays and their performance on stage, different items of memorial value (a desk, a cottage piano, a mirror, a sideboard, beds).
